10 Content Curation Tools Every Marketer Needs

If you’re thinking, “Yeah, I occasionally share a relevant post with my customers when I find one,” congratulations — you’re curating content. Unfortunately, you’re not doing so on a sustainable scale that makes you a trusted source.

But don’t worry — there are better ways to curate content for beginners that are completely free. Here are three simple sources of information to help you start getting in the habit of curating content, without being overwhelmed by complex tools, subscription fees or convoluted dashboards.

1) Pocket

Pocket

Pocket is a great place to get into the habit of accruing content to save and share later. Instead of a laundry list of bookmarks or countless emails you’ve sent to yourself with links, it keeps all your interesting images, articles, and videos in one place for reference. You can group articles with tags, and the site’s built-in search functionality makes finding those articles easy. Plus, it integrates with over 500 other apps, like Evernote, for seamless integration.

And as a bonus, Pocket tweets out their @PocketHits for the most-saved articles on their platform — a must-follow if you’re active on Twitter. For other “read-it-later” apps like Pocket, check out Instapaper.

2) Twitter Lists

TwitterLists

Twitter can be a streaming mess if you don’t organize the accounts you follow. That’s where Twitter lists come in handy — curated groups of Twitter users that you can categorize and follow separately from the rest of your feed. Here’s one that I created, which I continually manage and update. Even better, if you create a Pocket account, you can easily save articles from Twitter directly into your account.

3) Newsletters

Newsletters serve as a fantastic daily reminder to get your content curation done. For example, I follow HubSpot on Twitter, but don’t always get a chance to see its tweets when I’m busy. Fortunately, HubSpot also offers an email subscription. That way, if I don’t catch something notable on social media, I’m likely to catch it on email.

Whatever industry you’re in, stay on the lookout for newsletter subscriptions. And if a good one doesn’t exist in your industry, that’s the perfect opportunity to create one. But before you start your own newsletter, learn from what other outlets are doing. Here are a few that are doing a great job in original content curation:

  • Redef: Jason Hirschhorn, one of the pioneers in social media and formerly the co-president of MySpace, has launched a site curating the best in media, sports, fashion, music and technology. Subscribe to one of Reder’s newsletters for a taste of one of the best in content curation.
  • Quartz Daily Brief: Quartz has figured out how to make a text-heavy newsletter a stalwart in the news business with its Daily Brief. The beauty of the newsletter, because it’s text-based, is the cross-platform functionality. Without heavy images, the Daily Brief loads quickly on phones, tablets, and desktops, making it easy to read on any device.
  • Internet Brunch: Digital agency Big Spaceship created Internet Brunch to help folks “find the best news, GIFs, and trends from across the Internet.” From holidays, to current events, to celebrity birthdays, this roundup is sure to cover the important stuff that helps readers stay in the loop.

For Intermediates

Here are some great sources for when you’ve got the basics covered — resources like newsletters, social media, and read-it-later apps. But you’re looking for something a little more comprehensive, and if you’re willing to pay for a subscription, these are the comprehensive, algorithmically generated digests of news, feeds, and content to check out.

4) Scoop.it

Pricing: Free – $67/month

Scoopit

I like to think of Scoop.it as a nexus of content curation and social media, with a Pinterest-like user interface. Start with a topic of interest, and Scoop.it will not only generate the most relevant articles to view and share, but also, will suggest complementary topics and other Scoop.it users to follow. The site sends a daily update of the topics you follow, too, to help you keep pace with the most relevant articles to share.

The free version allows you to monitor one topic for posting, on two social media accounts. For a more robust platform that follows multiple topics for sharing across all your social channels, you might want to look into the paid options.

5) Feedly

Pricing: Free – $18 per user, per month

Feedly

Feedly is a supercharged RSS Feed. Here, content curation takes two routes: There’s web browsing 1.0 which is essentially visiting one site at a time, copying a URL, and pasting it accordingly. Then, there’s the news aggregation route that’s powered by Feedly. By simply adding a few of your favorite sources to Feedly, you can aggregate and browse these feeds in one place from your desktop and mobile devices. You can find a visual tutorial here.

KeywordMap Pro: Easy to Find the Golden Keyword

Finding the exact keyword to optimize the article is not easy while Google does not show any clear keyword information. Therefore, the blogger/ marketer must find alternative keyword tools to overcome this challenge.

Since 2014, I tried to use KeywordMap Pro to find the golden keyword. It is so useful for promoting the Product on Google.

You also know that Google ranks pages in order of relevance, the key to SEO has always been to figure out how to make your site more relevant.

This results in an increase boost in all the other SEO ranking factors and will force your page to the top of the search results faster.

Why is LSI research important for On-Page SEO?

When content creators write an article, they focus on the main head keyword and the associated long-tail keywords. However, without enough LSI keywords, their content does not read naturally.

LSI makes it easy for search engines to figure out how natural a piece of content is based on whether enough LSI keywords show up. It has been speculated that Google’s Panda update uses LSI keywords to figure out the quality of the content. If enough LSI keywords are not present, the content looks unnatural and hence of poor quality.

Why I use KeywordMap Pro?

KeywordMap Pro reveals exactly what Google loves. It will create your map in the 90 seconds.

In this period, any marketing strategy that doesn’t include traffic from Google has a big hole. KeywordMap Pro gets the mapping data directly from Google. You are easy to get more traffic with the keyword lists.

How to Start Creating a Successful Blog # 9 Tips You Need to Know

How to Start Creating a successful blog

@Credit: Blogging Informer https://blogginginformer.com/

Come up with a list of interests. Before you define your blog’s intention, you should have a general idea of what you want to write about.

The common topics include the following:
– Gaming Style
– Politics
– Social Justice
– Activism
– Cooking
– Food
– Travel
– Business

Know what not to blog about. Things like private information—both yours and other people’s—and personal details that you don’t want to share with people close to you shouldn’t be topics for your blog.

Consider your blog’s intention. While having in mind a blog topic is a good start, your blog needs a specific direction in order to get off the ground.

You can certainly find your own inspiration:

Teach something — Best-suited to instructional blogs.
Document your experience — Good for travel blogs, fitness challenges, and so on.
Entertain — Well-suited to a variety of mediums such as comedy writing, fan-fiction, and so on.
Call to action — Commonly used for your business or company blog.

Check out other blogs in your category. Once you’ve established your blog’s topic and goal, research other blogs that use the same topic and/or your preferred style of writing to see how they engage their audiences.

Create your blog using a reputable platform. Common blog platforms include WordPress, Blogger, and Tumblr, but you can choose any commonly used service you like.

Promote your blog on social media. Once you’ve created your blog and made a few posts, you can increase your blog traffic by posting a link to your blog on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Research keywords for your posts. “Keywords” are words which both pertain to your blog’s topic and have a high search engine rating.

Get your blog indexed by Google. Ensuring that your blog is indexed by Google will increase your search engine ranking, making it easier for people to find your blog when they look up related keywords.

Use images in your posts. One thing that search engines tend to prioritize over all else is image use, so make sure your posts have high-quality images attached to them.

Keep posting content. Little will cause your blog to stop drawing in traffic faster than not posting for a long period of time. Develop a posting schedule that allows you to post at least once per week and stick to it.

Things like private information, both yours and other people’s—and personal details that you don’t want to share with people close to you shouldn’t be topics for your blog.
